​Off-Campus Access

Accessing the Library's databases from home is simple.

Who can access the article and research databases from off campus?
Off campus access to the Library's databases is available only to currently enrolled Ridgewater students, faculty and staff.

What you need
You will need your StarID and password for off campus access. 

How to access the article and research databases 
Once you select a resource from the library website you will be prompted to enter your StarID and password to login to the library proxy server.  Some materials from these databases are not available full text online and will have to be ordered through the interlibrary loan process. For this you will need a library card which can be obtained from the Student Services area.  If you are an online student ONLY click here​ for the application form to obtain a card via mail. On the back of the ID card is a 14-digit number which is your barcode or library card number. Your password is your last name.
